12:12 pm
during the game. kaepernick went on to lead the 49ers to the nfc championship and a close loss to baltimore in the super bowl. a source close to the deal said the 9ers will get a second round draft pick in april. number 34 overall. and a conditional pick in the 2014 draft. there is still no indication that congressional democrats and republicans are anywhere close to a deal to avoid that $85 billion in automatic spending cuts. those cuts will kick in, in less than two days unless there is a agreement up on capitol hill. >> we should not have to move a third bill before the senate gets off their ass and begins to do something. >> i think you should understand who is sitting on their posterior. we're doing our best here to pass something. the speaker is doing nothing. >> they are speaking their mind. yesterday president obama rejected a republican plan that would give him the flexibility

to allocate those $85 billion in spending cuts. democrats say higher taxes should be part of the solution. here in california, some predict the sequester cuts will cost the state 125,000 jobs and other losses including $670 million in federal grants, more than $3 billion in statewide military and defense revenue. scary new numbers on breast cancer in young women. cases have tripled over the past 30 years. today dr. kim looks into why. >> reporter: researchers pored over data at the national cancer institute and made a startling discovery. since the 1970s, the number of young women diagnosed with deadly breast cancer is slowly but steadily going up. >> this terrible metastasized late stage breast cancer is actually increasing in young women. >> reporter: the number rose from roughly 250 cases in 1976

to 850 30 years later. dr. tina clark is with the cancer prevention institute of california. >> this gives us huge pause as to what might be going on in these women to cause such aggressive breast cancers. >> reporter: while the study doesn't provide any clues as to what's driving the trend -- >> it is mind-boggling. >> reporter: dr. bill goodson has an idea. >> i think we're living in a big chemical soup. >> reporter: goodson says the cancers in the report are fueled by hormones but don't blame the pill. >> that doesn't explain what goes on with men. and something is affecting men in roughly the same way as it affects women. >> reporter: he says we are seeing a similar trend in male breast cancer and he suspects chemicals like bpa, a controversial compound that's thought to mimic estrogen and is used in everything from plastic bottles to the linings in cans. >> the degree to which chemicals have been part -- have become part of what we are is -- is -- is staggering.
12:15 pm
>> the american chemistry council says bpa has been extensively evaluated and declared safe for use but experts say if you are concerned, you can minimize exposure. don't microwave food in plastic. buy food in glass jars. and say no to receipts. did not know bpa was in receipts. >> now we know. how about weather, lawrence karnow? >> and boy, we are looking good around the bay area. we are going to see some wild weather though some 70s this week and then maybe a little rain so i think we hopefully will get back to showers around the bay area but right now basking in sunshine. that's going to stick around into the afternoon. these temperatures will be amazing for this time of year. we have clear skies out over the bay a few high clouds overhead. we'll see those from time to time throughout the afternoon. but it will be a beautiful day. 62 degrees in concord and now 54 in san francisco. 61 in san jose. toward the evening hours looking nice, plenty of sunshine and these temperatures it's going to be mild to warm outside partly cloudy tonight as we'll see a few high clouds
12:16 pm
warmer days ahead at least for the next few days and then big changes toward the weekend. the pollen count is moderate so yes if you have been sniffing and sneezing a lot of pollen and trees blooming around the bay area at this time of the year so we are going to see more of that with the mild conditions. we have a flat ridge hanging out along the pacific just strong enough to especially koo the jet stream to the north. so -- stron enough to keep the jet stream to the north. so from time to time clouds will work over the top of the ridge. other than that mild to warm. maybe we start talking about some mid-70s friday. how about around the state? around 68 degrees in sacramento, 68 in fresno, 56 degrees in yosemite, and 48 in lake tahoe. as we head around the bay, we'll keep those temperatures mainly in the upper 60s. maybe some low 70s in the south bay this afternoon. 60s at the coastline. and then we are looking at 60s as you make your way to the east bay. those temperatures soaring in the 60s by the afternoon and then looks like almost 70 degrees as we head toward the latter part of the day. yeah, it looks like it is going
12:17 pm
to be a beautiful afternoon and indeed, we're pretending that we'll see, well, hopefully some rain in the near future. maybe a chance of some showers as we get toward the weekend. but just a slight chance of a few sprinkles north of the golden gate bridge saturday night into sunday. i think a better chance of rain now as we head in toward late tuesday and into wednesday. but for the next few days, wow, it's going to be gorgeous. >> friday looks gorgeous. >> that's the day to play hooky if you are going to do it.

picking out the perfect batch.. fresh grocer tony tantillo is in the house today with imported blueberries and he says there is a trick to picking out the perfect batch. >> reporter: winter blueberries, hey, you can't beat it. but you have to select them and store them right or otherwise, forget about it. they are going to be bitter. this is what you have to do when you buy them. look at the tray, the darker the better, very important like this nice and dark all the way around. check the size of the tray or the bottom of the -- sides and bottom of the tray. if there is any moisture, they are decaying and that you don't want. when you bring them home, store them in the refrigerator right away. that is so important because remember, they are imported. they come from thousands of miles away. so buy them, store them for one
